New Perspectives on Lucid Dreaming, Part 1: Science, Psychology and Education

I talked with Ryan Hurd, Kelly Bulkeley, G. Scott Sparrow, and Robert Waggoner about their contributions to “Lucid Dreaming: New Perspectives on Consciousness in Sleep” volume 1, which covers Science, Psychology and Education.

Topics we discussed:

Ryan and Kelly, the editors of this 2-volume set, discussed how the project came about. (1:18)
Kelly Bulkeley talks about how often lucid dreaming occurs in the population, and how lucid dreams differ from regular dreams. (4:44)
Robert Waggoner discusses how to lucid dream, the different stages of lucid dreaming we go through as we explore its many possibilities, and what happens when you attempt advanced dreaming techniques early on (11:24)
Ryan Hurd on the Paleolithic mind, placing lucid dreaming within the anthropology of extraordinary states, and working with lucid nightmares (18:21)
Scott Sparrow on how to reconcile our dual impulses to act freely in dreams, versus respecting the autonomy of dream characters and relating to them on their own terms (26:35)
I asked all four guests how dreams can aid people suffering from trauma and PTSD. (36:47)

    Have you ever asked your lucid dream characters questions? Post the question and their responses to my channel. I'm trying to collect stories to see common traits on lucid dream characters.

    10.33 "And potentially how can you train people" If there's a transition from Lucidity to Volition, it could be because a particular "State" or process of Lucidity is responsible for Volition. Ever thought about trying NLP's model(l)ing of abilities into Sensory Sub-modular processes?
